In my lifetime of football experience with Liverpool, I have played with, treated, coached and managed a host of great players and it has always been a temptation for me - and others - to choose my best all-time team. I now succumb to the temptation and commit this 4-2-4 line-up to print:
Ray Clemence Phil Neal Mark Lawrenson
Ron Yeats Emlyn Hughes Kenny Dalglish
Graeme Souness Ian Callaghan Kevin Keegan
Roger Hunt Billy Liddell Ian St John (sub)

"Terry McDermott once got us hysterical in the dressing room, laughing at Bob Paisley’s expense. The boss had a habit of saying the word “doins” all the time. He’d refer to opposition players as “doins” instead of naming them. So Bob comes into the dressing room and starts a talk. Terry stood behind him with a big grin on his face and every time Bob says “doins” he holds a finger up. By the time he gets to six, Terry is starting to titter and we’re trying not to laugh. Ray Kennedy is kicking me and when he gets to 10, Ray just turns and flees into the toilet, he’s in absolute fits. We were like a bunch of schoolkids."
